Filing Your Work Injury ClaimIf you sustained an injury on the job and believe you have the right to pursue legal action, it is important that you contact a workers' compensation attorney as soon as possible. These types of claims can be complicated and often call for in-depth investigations, which is why hiring an attorney who is familiar in the field is highly beneficial. With over 17 years of experience and plenty of cases under his belt, our attorney has what it takes to take on even the most complex cases. When you hire our firm, we will get to know you and obtain a thorough understanding of your situation. We will help you determine if you have grounds to file a workers' compensation claim, and if so, we will help you throughout the entire process. We want to focus on the legal side of things while you focus on your recovery and getting back on your feet.
Asbestos-Related ClaimsAsbestos-related claims are different and can be more complex, because they do not involve immediately sustaining an injury on the job. Rather, asbestos-related illnesses develop over time, and are often caused by toxic exposure in the workplace. Oftentimes, workers do not think they have the option of pursuing workers’ compensation if their illness is asbestos-related, however; if you can prove that you were directly exposed to toxins at the workplace, you may be granted compensation. Exposure to asbestos could result in breathing problems, mesothelioma, and various types of cancer. If you are dealing with any of these types of illnesses and believe the origin was exposure to a dangerous substance at work, it may benefit you to reach out to an attorney right away.
Construction AccidentsAre you a construction worker who has sustained an injury while on the job? If so, you may be eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim. Construction is one of the most dangerous industries to work in, and we believe that if you have sustained an injury while at work, your rights deserve to be protected. There are a number of construction-related incidents that can lead to serious injuries, such as falls, caught-in or between accidents, struck-by accidents, or electrocution. Regardless of what your specific situation entails, we will work to build the strongest case possible in order to yield the most favorable results. We genuinely care about our clients, and ensure they receive the supportive counsel they deserve from start to finish.
